    I worked at Central New Mexico Community College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good health benefits, relaxed culture

    Cons

    strange departmental issues with communication

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people who are outside the scope of their knowledge/experience. I did find that the company would hire less-qualified, less-educated people for positions over other candidates who held masters degrees. I found that it was easy for those in the company to offer preferential treatment to people they were friends with. In my case, my manager was someone who wasn't even formally trained/educated in the department we worked in. She managed to be grandfathered in during a transitional period at the institution. It was very frustrating to managed by someone in a field that I have more experience/education in. In another instance, they hired someone who didn't even have an US-accredited undergraduate degree, but they gave her the job out of many others with masters degrees in the specific field. I noticed many other instances like this. Management should definitely focus more on that, especially considering how hard it is to get a job there.

    I worked at Central New Mexico Community College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Great hard-working and cooperative staff with a few glaring exceptions that made it very hard on everyone else.

    Cons

    Difficult relationship with only voluntary but uncooperative staff that did not report to me.

    Advice to Management

    Anyone who performs duties critical to successful performance of the Senior Accounting Director-Contracts and Grants should be a direct report. I depended on someone I could never count.

    Pros

    Trying to think of pluses. Things have gone down hill for the last year.

    Low salaries, compartmentalized departments. Manager and directors that are too far out of touch with the operations.

    Advice to Management

    Start from the top. Quality leadership and trim the fat. Get rid of the dead weight.

    I worked at Central New Mexico Community College part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Students are mostly wonderful, flexibility of teaching schedule, other instructors are great, nice but unpaid long breaks, PTO and sick leave

    Cons

    CNM has virtually no regard for adjunct faculty or veteran status when assigning classes. No communication or transparency between admin and faculty.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and look out for the welfare of your adjunct faculty. You can't function w/o us!
